Al Roker Takes Jab at Matt Lauer for Ann Curry Firing

by at . Comments

Matt Lauer, you've been served. By your very own co-worker.

During a segment on The Today Show this morning, Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie were interviewing a few Olympic rowers when the topic turned to the latter's post-race traditions, which include tossing teammates into the water. Joked the host:

"The tradition here in New York is you throw her in the Hudson River."

Roker then jumped in with: "Which is different than OUR tradition ... which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story."

The anchors laughed, but everyone must have been aware of Roker's reference: Lauer is considered the main reason why Ann Curry was unceremoniously fired from her Today Show post earlier this summer.

Oh, to have been a fly on the set wall when the show went to commercial.
